12 oz can poured into a pint glass (should I have used a pilsener?). The color is a hazy red and the appearance is so inviting. The head is quite fluffy. The smell is like bread. The taste is pretty good considering I usually only drink ales. The taste is bready as well and reminds me of an Oktoberfest beer. Man I suck at reviewing beers. This one is good and I am glad to have tried it. Thanks go to nflmvp for sending this my way. Serving type: can Reviewed on: 03-01-2007 00:56:20

From a can poured dark amber with a good amount of head. Nice toatsed sweet malty flavor with a quick finish.

mansquito (3513) - Nueva York, New York, USA - JAN 6, 2010
Dark red amber with a beige head that sticks around for some moments. Has a very lager smell with the slightest amount of German Lager hops smell in it (looking at what people write about aromas, it seems that no one can agree on what the aroma is). Front of the beer feels like nothing and the tastes develop more towards the middle and the end. You got some lager bitterness, like the same kind that you would find in a Heineken. A few roasted malts notes. Bitter finish. Minimal aftertaste.

5000 (6298) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - JAN 2, 2010
Can: Darker Amber, on the reddish side, thin spritzy off-white head, sparce lacing, no carbonation.   Malty nose, a little honey sweet, slight cereal but its minor.   Somewhat neutral.   Malty on the tongue, quite nice actually, mild sweetness, very little cereal comes through.   Does fade somewhat quickly though.   This one even has a little hop flavor on the backside.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate, perhaps nearing the lighter side.   Well crafted, not big mind you, flavorful, but fades quickly, all while remaining fairly clean.   More enjoyable than expected.   Thanks Jeff for the can!

The only other Sly Fox beer I’ve had was their pils, which was super! The dunkel was a valiant effort, but it fell short of my expectations. Nice dark brown color with red hues, but a very short lasting head. Thin body, with a touch of grittiness and astringency. The flavor was a bit too sweet, with way too much licorice like aftertaste. Honestly, this beer reminded me more of a porter, or a thin stout rather than a dunkle.

Clear amber, thin head. Oat and barley aroma. Weird earthy grainy taste. Thin body.

altonbrownd (3681) - Brussels, BELGIUM - DEC 20, 2009
Can from Whole Foods (Bowery/Houston). Nice dark brown body with razor thin head. Sweet and malty nose with chocolate notes. Nice taste of malts, toffee and chocolate. It’s also ice cold. So maybe I should have let it warm up a bit to get more flavour out of it. Very smooth. Goes down well.

In a can from BOTW, I was hoping the photo wasn’t accurate, and I’d get a bottle, but not to be. The look of this is nice. An autumn color, burnt sienna, some head. Very doughy nose with a bit of spiciness. Mouthfeel is tingly and clean. Palate is malty and spicy similar to the nose, decent session beer.
